Chrome Core 18-FM Solenoid Quality stainless is a soft magnetic ferritic material designed for operation in more corrosive environments than tolerated by 18% Cr-Fe Type 430 stainless. This new material has corrosion resistance superior to that of CarTech 430FR Solenoid Quality stainless with generally similar magnetic properties. Key benefits of this magnet include:
Chrome Core 18-FM Solenoid Quality stainless is stabilized with columbium to provide improved corrosion resistance with optimum machinability. The alloy balance also provides resistivity similar to that of CarTech 430FR Solenoid Quality stainless. High resistivity is beneficial in applications involving C excitation due to the suppression of eddy current losses.
